2013 Scion FR-S Long Term Road Test

2013 Scion FR-S: Earthy

April 29, 2013

2013 Tesla Model S

It was an inglorious job, but I needed the Scion FR-S to help me retire an old microwave to a nearby household hazardous waste recycler. Monday being Earth Day and all, it seemed like an appropriate mission in a sports car in which we're averaging 24.3 mpg in combined driving. That's just 0.7 mpg shy of what the government's green people say we should be getting. And further proof that the FR-S isn't useful only for inducing permagrin in decreasing radius turns.

The irony? The recycler is closed on Mondays. Even on Earth Day.
